Calendar of Events

The Friends of the Park manages and/or sponsors a number of events that celebrate the natural beauty and cultural heritage of Virgin Islands National Park.  These events aim to educate and connect visitors and the St. John community with the Park, as well as serving as fundraising opportunities in support of our programs.  

  In the interests of public health and safety, all in person Friends seminars, hikes, events and volunteer opportunities are canceled.  As soon as it is deemed safe, we will schedule in person events but as of now, we have no events scheduled for 2020 or 2021.
